Contract Language Regarding Veteran's Day
The statewide "common calendar" is being implemented for first time by the BOR, which has resulted in some changes. For example, some colleges are open and running classes for the first time on Veteran's Day. Our contract has not changed! Veteran's Day is still a holiday for the professional staff (CCPs). As in the past, you may be required to work if your manager requests it, but if so, you should be granted equivalent time off another day.

If you have any questions about the contract language, please contact the 4Cs office at 860.296.5172 and you will be directed to the organizer for your campus.


November 10th Day of Action for Adjuncts & Low Wage Workers
Adjunct faculty are joining the  global   
day of action on Tuesday, Novembe r 10  in support of the Fight for $15. Strikes and demonstrations will take place in 270 cities. In Hartford, there will be a march starting at 3:45pm at the McDonald's at 170 Washington Street and ending at the Legislative Office Building. 

Following the march, Connecticut's  new, low-wage worker advisory panel will hear testimony from the public. The Wage Board  will advise agencies on issues facing low-wage employees. The board's listed tasks include recommending minimum wage rates needed for an "economically stable living standard" in Connecticut.  To find out additional information about our November 10 action, please contact Greg Jackson at greg@the4cs.org. 

This is also a great opportunity to write letters to the editor to inform your community about the need for a living wage for adjunct faculty! Contact the 4Cs office for some talking points if you are interested.
